External Program Facilitators
Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) is expanding our pool of External Program Facilitators
CSNSW delivers a range of programs to offenders who are in custody and offenders who are under Community Corrections supervision orders. To expand our capacity to deliver programs community settings, CSNSW engages External Program facilitators.
There are 58 Community Corrections offices across New South Wales and CSNSW External Program facilitators are engaged to deliver programs across the state. Program delivery in remote and regional NSW is a priority and people from regional locations who have the requisite skills and knowledge are encouraged to apply. External Facilitators located in regional and remote locations who are requested to travel significant distances to deliver programs may be eligible for a modest financial travel incentive.
CSNSW Community Programs run during business hours, after hours and on weekends.
What we need:
External Facilitators must demonstrate:
- that they can work independently and with a high level of integrity;
- an understanding of, and experience in, the delivery of group based behaviour change programs;
- experience working with complex and vulnerable groups; and
- a high level of administrative and record keeping proficiency.
Experience working with offender groups will be highly regarded.
What you get:
- Paid training and on-going professional development to all successful applicants.
- A casual work engagement opportunity.
- Generous remuneration for each program engagement that includes program delivery, time spent preparing sessions, writing participant case notes and session debriefs.
- Invitations to participate in regular CSNSW Program Delivery Workshops.
Note: CSNSW External Facilitators are engaged on an as-needs basis. CSNSW cannot guarantee a minimum number of program facilitation hours.
